BECAUSE 2020 IS THE YEAR THAT JUST KEEPS ON GIVING! ONE WEEK AGO I DISCOVERED THAT MY FORMER VAS JEWELRY ACCOUNT HAD BEEN HACKED, LOCKED, BLOCKED AND BASICALLY MADE COMPLETELY INACCESSIBLE.
Despite our best efforts to unlock it we have not been unable to. After much thought, scoffs and deliberation we decided to spin this positively and make the best of what is a completely annoying situation. We have picked ourselves up by the proverbial bootstraps, bitten the bullet, ripped off the bandaid (etc.) and launched a new account. Out of this fiasco @vasjewelrydesign was born.
This has turned into a great opportunity to develop a community of jewelry, art and design lovers who find inspiration and value from our posts and we also receive valued feedback from a community that we love and respect. This year brought some new changes to this business in the form of a new logo, website and online store so why not a new IG account as well. What a few weeks ago was aggravating now feels liberating! With this new account we promise to create a space that focuses on authenticity and value and we will continue to stay true to the artistic vision that is the heart and soul of each VAS Jewelry design. Please click the Follow button to join us on this journey and join a community that will continue to prioritize artistry and craftsmanship and quality over quantity.
A thank you to What now, Nat? who wrote an inspiring blog post about the benefits of starting an IG account from scratch and the joys of simplifying and focusing on a community based approach to Instagram. I would especially like to thank the ever amazing Lindsay Geitz Graphic Design for her insight, artistic talent and all out hustle to get this account back up and running! You are truly the amazing one and I could not have done this without you.
So here's to feeling inspired once again, to having a positive mindset and to fresh starts!
